Founded in 2004, this prosperous rural hotel is dedicated to its eco-friendly practices and has built up a large and loyal clientele. The country house is filled with rustic charm and is in excellent condition. The ten spacious bedrooms have lots of bright natural light and the attention to detail throughout can be seen in the wooden finishes, beautiful inlaid patterns on the walls, gorgeous decorations, beautiful exposed stone walls, large wooden windows and shutters, terracotta floors and high, wooden beamed ceilings. Some of the rooms also have mezzanines and/or private terraces with incredible views of the orchard and the natural park. The electricity supply comes 100% from renewable energy thanks to the seven solar panels, and the lighting, heating and air conditioning systems have been selected for their low energy consumption.
The communal areas of the hotel comprise an air-conditioned dining room with fireplace, a pleasant living room with fireplace and library with exposed stone walls and an exclusive spa. A separate hut of 32 m2, roofed and semi-enclosed, offers a versatile space for seminars, retreats, etc.
Surrounded by orange trees in a picturesque rural setting where the Guadiaro River runs through the lush green valley, guests can simply enjoy relaxing by the swimming pool or in the gardens in hammocks and sun loungers or enjoy one of the hotel's services: a sauna, jacuzzi, massage or clay bath with magnesium salts and essential oils. Alternatively, the surrounding area also offers many opportunities for adventurous nature lovers to go kayaking, cycling, hiking or even canyoning, in the impressive Buitreras Canyon.
The property is located in the heart of the Alcornocales Natural Park by the banks of the Guadiaro River on the very outskirts of the town of El Colmenar. El Colmenar, like some of the other white-washed villages in the Serrania de Ronda in Malaga, enjoys a mild climate and so makes a superb location for a rural tourism business.
What's more, this lovely eco-friendly bed and breakfast is found only five minutes drive from the nearest train station, from which one can travel on to other much loved destinations such as Ronda, the beaches of the Costa del Sol and the stunning province of Cádiz.
